For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being ...more

Well, a story about best friends in love trapped in a snow storm trying to get warm (ehehehehe) and realizing how they felt for each other <3

Kyler and Sydney have been best friends ever since they were kids, and secretly in love with each other ever since they were teenagers.

VERY LOW 4 stars!!! BUT I still loved SOOO much about this book!

Frigid is NOT my favorite book by this very talented authors, and as much as I loved it, I did have a few issues. The constant misunderstandings and lack of communication throughout this WHOLE friends-to-lovers trope became tedious and tiring after awhile. And even though I liked both of the main characters, Kyler's voracious man-whoring ways was more of a turn OFF for me, NOT a turn on. I still fell in love with him but he was no

What's better than a six pack?

An eight pack!

In reality, even though I’d been with everyone else, I’d always been Syd’s.

“I’ve loved you since you pushed me down on the playground. I swear— I’ve loved you since then.”

First of all , I can’t believe that I'm rating a J.L. Armetrout book with 4 stars.

It wasnt bad BUT Sydney was frustrating most of the times.

Secondly, shirtless guys should be banned.

Okay, I CANNOT wait for this book. I wanna read it so bad. Plus, it's by JLA. That means there's a 100% chance I'm gonna love it to death.

And, aha, Kyler. Kyler Kyler Kyler. Have we all seen the drool-worthy boy for him?

(His real name is Adam, by the way.)

Yeah. I can't even.

Ahhh, this cover's going to be great, and then the book is going to be even greater, and this is just going to be AWESOME.

Personally, I think SHP should release it, like, now. But hey, that's just me.

Either way, AHHHHHHHHH. &

Jennifer Armentrout AKA the Yoda of sexual tension does it again with this book of scrumptious amazingness!

Seriously, I didn’t even know you could write a sex scene like that! GEEZ! And it’s not just the way this woman can write a sex scene that makes her writing so electric… it’s the way she architects her characters. Sydney, for exampl

I can't believe this book. It was so, what's the word? Awful?

I know it's Jennifer Armentrout we're talking about but sadly all of her books (except Covenant Series) have the same bland characters. I remember lusting over Daemon when Obsidian first came out but now I just can't remember why. Most people, who obsessively read new adult novels will love her every book but I just wish it had more substance. Something other than a girl with self-esteem issues, a guy who has abs to die for and a mile

What a wonderful, unexpected breath of fresh air! I've had such a hard time with the New Adult genre lately. Too much DRAMA, too much ANGST, too many OVERREACTIONS and too many UNREALISTIC situations. If I wanted to hear about that kind of thing, I'd go ask my ten year old about the gossip going on in her fifth grade classroom. There would be many, many BFFs crushing on the same cute boy and loads of OMG moments followed by mean girls ROTFL.

Fortunately, that was not the case here. Sydney and Kyl

So, Kyler and Sydney are best friends since they were kids.
Sydney is a little uptight good girl that’s in love with Kyler since forever. But she knows Kyler doesn’t do the commitment thing: He sees, he does, and he leaves. And she knows that he will never see more in her that a best friend.

Sydney has loved Kyler for as long as she can remember. They have been best friends since they were children. Kyler is a bit of a player (understatement ;) and Syd knows he doesn’t see her that way. She won’t risk their friendship by letting him know how she feels. Even though it hurts seeing him with g

The book isn't that great.
ANOTHER book based on lack of communication between two people who love each other.
A totally used plot..

The characters seemed very immature; personality wise. They didn't seem like they were 21.
The twist was so predictable.

I expected a lot more seeing as all my friends gave this book 4 and 5 stars.

The only thing I loved about this book was the cover.

Kyler and Sydney have been friends forever but for quite a while, they have each wanted the other as more. Different reasons have stopped them from following through on anything. Finally, things start to change when they are stranded in a cabin during a snow storm.


For the most part, I enjoyed this story. It's not complicated and it's an easy read. Besides the emotional yo-yo, there is some suspense but even that is easy to figure out.

I did like both Kyler and Sydney. They are sweet and

Frigid is sexy romance story which frustrated the hell out of me!

My Kyler and Sydney:

Sydney is really nice but uptight 21 years old girl who is in love with her best friend Kyler. It pains her to see him man-whore his way at college but her feelings for him are only getting stronger. She thinks she doesn't stand a chance and she doesn't want to ruin their friendship.

Kyler doesn't care about countless girls she slept with but he does care for his best friend Sydney. However, he tries to persuade

Ich hatte so Lust auf dieses Buch, dass ich es mir direkt kaufen musste und es auch gleich auf der Rückfahrt im Zug begonnen habe zu lesen. Die Geschichte war wirklich zuckersüß, charmant und witzig und hatte interessanterweise zusätzlich den "Thrill"-Effekt. Eine rundum gelungene Mischung und durchweg sympathische Charaktere mit denen man mitfühlen konnte - sowohl mit Sydney als auch mit Kyler - da die Geschichte aus wechselnder Perspektive erzählt wird.

J *deep in the heart of Texas* pains me to do so but, damn this book was BAD! And I'm a BIG JLA fan! But this one just didn't work for me. At. All.

The Plot:

Not. Original.

The first half of the book....waiting, waiting, waiting!

You two seriously need to have a conversation. One where you aren't LYING to each other's face. PLEASE! I hate spending the entire book in a state of miscommunication.


Poor, poor Sydney. Honestly, she ranks up there as one of my LEAST favorite heroines of all time.

Is anyone really THAT
No one could replace me in his life. I knew that. I was the friend who knew everything about him and whom he trusted above everyone else. I was Kyler's best friend. And because of that, he would never love me the way i loved him.

Sydney has been secretly in love with her best friend, Kyler, since what seems like forever. She hates that he is a man-whore and a player who never says 'no' to a girl that wants to jump his bones. The only excpetion? Her.


For Kyler, Sydney is the only girl who owns

this would be a 3 star for me but!!! But I really loved the sex parts, how he was educating her bwahahahaha and his POV... le sigh...

I have mixed feelings about this book, on the one hand I truly loved it and then on the other there were parts which, for me, just didn't work....

It's a story told from the dual perspective of our hero and heroine which is always a bonus for me......

Edit 12/20/14: After browsing and reviewing my reviews, I can't help but notice that I sound maybe a teensy weensy bit condescending in this one. Sorry, guys. If you love this book, no probs. We cool. To those who haven't read the book, please don't let this review dissuade you from reading it. There are lots of people who found this wonderful but sadly, I am not one of them. Still, I think you should give this a try and see for yourselves. That's all. Thank you. *bows*

Frigid is another amazing and spectacular love story created by the best modern romance writer Jennifer L Armentrout. With every new book she's publishing, I am all in love with it after only a few pages. She mesmerizes readers by her extraordinary way of telling stories, flowing, quick, amusing and full of spunk style of writing. She knows excatly how to captivate me and hold my attention to the very last page. Doesn't matter if it's paranormal book or contemporary novel.

This was a cute, fluffy "friends-to-lovers" New Adult romance and while it was very predictable, it was also just light, sexy and fun.

It had several laughs, and a lot of steam in the second half and despite the plot being very predictable, sometimes you really need that - especially after a particularly dark or intense read.

The story is about Kyler and Sydney who had been inseparable best friends since childhood ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Bu

I liked, but didn't love this one. (Maybe I was expecting too much after my total obsession with Cam). I liked the beginning, and wow, I felt every second angst from Sydney's seemingly unrequited love for Kyler. But at some point, when they were both dancing around their feeling and attraction, while spending WAY to much time thinking about how they weren't good enough for the other, I just got frustrated and bored.

You'd think then that I would have welcomed the "action" thrown in at the end, b
